If you are new to the BCN, as a boat owner or as a hirer, try the Titford Canal!
It’s a short canal that has everything BCN:
- Some old industrial areas
- Factory bridges leading to old canal arms
- Six easy locks in pretty surroundings
- Lots of nature
- Pubs and shopping opportunities
- Titford Pump House, you might meat us!
- Titford Pools at the end
You will have reached the highest point on the BCN, 511 feet above sea level, and you might be rewarded with this plaque for navigating the Titford Pools!
The Titford Canal is easy to reach from the BCN Main Line, the “fast track” between Birmingham and Wolverhampton, and you will discover perhaps unexpectedly pretty areas of the BCN, like the Smethwick locks area, and the Brades staircase. How long will it take to get there, and back to continue your journey? CanalPlanAC has all the answers!
If you are interested in the history of this canal, you might enjoy a video about the lost arms and branches of this canal.
